Curriculum helps children learn fasterPublished in News and Ideas
Children who start school late in Mombasa, Kwale and Kilifi counties now have a chance to catch up with their agemates.

ROYNF (Robert and Yeranda Nkosi Foundation) is a micro level incremental innovation complemented by comparative data which seeks to raise learning outcomes by developing a language appropriate participative learning model. The ROYNF approach is compatible with Uganda’s national Thematic Curriculum, and yet distinct, in that, it features pupils’student group work, application in private schools, and kinaesthetic/participative activities. While these might not be new ideas, their application in this context is innovative. This project targets Lumasaaba language speakers, but the approach should be useful in other languages, as well.
